This Article will show you how to Hide or Disable Guest Login and Remote Login from Login Screen of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr.
I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr on First day of its release, As of now, Not a single crash took place which is great indication of Stability. I noticed few LightDM related changes in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr.
In previous versions of Ubuntu like 13.04 and 13.10 there was “/usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults” command, By using this command you can Disable / Enable / Hide / Show Guest Login or Remote login by executing on command prompt but in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr this command doesn’t exist. But not to worry, I managed to do it by editing / updating lightDM configuration.
To Disable / Hide Guest Login / Remote Login, Following steps will help you :
1. Mandatory : root access or sudo access equivalent to root.
2. /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf doesn’t exist by default on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr, So we have to create it as per our requirement.
2.1 Execute following command :
root@tejas-barot-linux:~$ sudo touch /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
2.2 Add following contents to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf , Save and Exit from file.
=> sudo vi /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf [SeatDefaults] greeter-show-remote-login=false allow-guest=false
3. Now restart your system and You will not be able to see Guest / Remote Login on Login Screen.
Enjoy Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr 🙂 Enjoy Linux 🙂 Enjoy Open Source 🙂
